Website-product testimonials Bullshit?
    #3402912 - 11/24/04 11:27 AM (12 years, 12 days ago)

Websites or even TV infomercials always have countless product testimonials of promising results. As a matter of fact, these first hand accounts of how effective these products are is what persuades me to sometime purchase the item.
MY question is: can these testimonials be completely bullshit or is there an enforced rule (kinda like an FDA type thing) that makes sure these things are?nt completely fabricated. I?m sure a few are exaggerated but can someone actually just sit there under the ?testimonial? link and type whatever the hell he wants?

can. its not legal, here, to lie to sell your product. internet testemonials are such shit. i dotn buy them or even look at them. whos to prove that it is real? i think the owners write em up and happen to know a "john" or "joan" so that if they do need to they got a fall back.

WOW...like even forums where members are endorsing a product can just be a bunch of compnany reps under multiple screennames who post poistive messages on the forum simply to make the general public beive its for real. Im not saying this forum but for example: if a Vendor became a sponsor here, and claimed to sell a new legal LSD or a sporeprint of a shroom which grows like a chia pet when you sprinkle it with water,.....all the comapmny would have to do is register a dozen names at the shroomery who claim to be members and give trip reports and testimonials on how fantastic the products are.... Man this is bullshit

I thought there was some type of law that enforced that testimonials were in fact true.

Like, you can post testimonials, but you also have to be able to prove that it was a real customer, and truly what they said.

I'm not positive that there's is an enforcement method, but from what other people have told me, I'm under the impression there is.

The internet on the other hand is hardly regulated, so I'm pretty doubtful of most of the testimonials I read on here.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
